The Farr Road Farmette consists of two parcels (2800 and 2820 Farr Rd) that combine for a total of just under 2.5 acres. There are several buildings on the property including a historic stone home, stunning historic bank barn, milk shed, and root cellar/smokehouse. The property abuts Wildlands Conservancy property and is conveniently located in Lower Macungie Township.
The house at Farr Road is a 3800 sf stone home built circa 1795 with a rich history. The stone farmhouse is currently approved as a two unit but it has most recently been used as a business headquarters and residence. The owners have invested in many upgrades to bring the property into the modern era while still preserving the historic features. New metal roof, new furnace, new windows, total rewiring, new plumbing, insulation, and so much more have been added to make the home more comfortable and energy efficient. Throughout all the renovations and improvements, the owners carefully preserved the historical features so the charm, historic significance, and character remain intact. All that is left for a new owner to do are a few finishing cosmetic touches to bring this property up to its full potential as a beautiful single family home or to use it as an income producing 2 unit.*
The circa 1810 bank barn is about 6000 sf and full of character. The owners have restored the entire ceiling and added a metal roof. The 2nd level flooring has been replaced and refinished and other upgrades have been made such as new windows, garage doors, and electrical upgrades. The right buyer will appreciate the beauty and history of this building and be able to use it for their business* or personal pleasure. If you are looking for a project, it could make a stunning single family home*.
In addition to the 2 main buildings this almost 2.5 acre property is full of other bonuses. The milk shed is located near the barn and has electricity and water. Behind the main house, there is a unique two story building that is both a smoke house and a root cellar. There are also several established garden plots with soil that has proven to produce fabulous flowers and has been only treated with organic materials during the current ownership.
The possibilities for this property are endless so bring your imagination and dreams and schedule your showing today!
